    Dirt Bikes! Waterfall Jumps! Cigars! Summer Book Picks! Henderson Ventura | Miami Box Press Ep. 65

    Ease into your own leather recliner and grab a smoke with Boveda’s Rob Gagner and AdVentura Cigars’ Henderson Ventura. This cigar talk meanders as many do at a smoke lounge delving into hobbies, hammocks, never-will-I-evers, book recommendations for guys and your mom’s cooking. Filmed on location at The Terrible Cigar Club, South Miami’s largest outdoor terrace and indoor cigar lounge and public cigar shop, which also features an online monthly cigar subscription.
    Henderson hails from a tobacco family. For two decades, his father William Ventura worked for Davidoff. In 2007, William launched his own business, Tabacalera William Ventura. Henderson is the general manager of this family cigar business. In addition to the AdVentura cigar brand, which Henderson Ventura created with Marcel Knobel, the factory also produces premium long fillers for many other boutique D.R. brands, including Caldwell Cigars and La Barba.

    It’s like a 12-minute immersive experience in a cigar escape room! Join us as we search for unicorns, never-released samples and private blends in Willy Herrera’s cigar stash. Willy is one big dude—literally and figuratively—in premium cigars.
    The master blender for Drew Estate combines tobaccos to maintain consistency among legacy lines and to create new releases for the cult cigar brand. His authentic Cuban influence led to the creation of the eponymous Herrera Estelí lines, which include a Habano, Norteño and Brazilian Maduro.
    The Herrera Estelí Miami is crafted by "Level 9" rollers from Cuba at El Titán de Bronze Cigars, which is the oldest remaining Fabrica in Miami’s Little Havana. His family-owned cigar factory is where Willy learned the craft of premium cigars.

    Want a Cigar that Won't Give You Ashtray Mouth? | HVC Cigars | Miami Box Press Ep. 63

    How do you judge a cigar? Focus on a cigar’s flavor, balance, construction and clean finish suggests HVC founder Reinier Lorenzo. A cigar with a clean finish won’t leave you with a weird taste in your mouth afterward—what smokers call ashtray mouth.
    Native Cuban Reiner founded the small-batch cigar house HVC in 2011, as a homage to hand-made cigars in Havana. “To me, Cubans, when they are right, when you have a really good Cuban cigar, there’s nothing that you can compare with. So now in Nicaragua, we at HVC, we want to replicate that.”
    Filmed on location at HVC headquarters in Doral, Florida with Boveda’s Rob Gagner.

    Which Boveda to Use to Store Cuban Cigars:
    If you smoke Cubans or other cigars with oily wrappers, you can customize the moisture in your humidor with Boveda. Cigars like these do best at a slightly lower relative humidity with Boveda 65% RH. (65% RH is great for aging premium cigars, too.)
    Before you add cigars to a new wood humidor, always season it first with the Boveda Humidor Starter Kit, a great Father’s Day gift for cigar smokers.

Learning to listen

Rob, I do enjoy the show. You get good guests on and interesting topics. The interview with Lissette Carrillo was horrible. You kept interrupting her, not letting her finish her sentences. You were not listening to what she was saying , you already had your thoughts and the the questions were already answered if you listened to her.

Great Podcast

I have always enjoyed a good cigar, but have found this podcast, with the enthusiasm of the host and the “off-the-beaten-path” interviews to have really increased my love of enjoying a cigar. The diversity of the stories makes me appreciate how enjoying a cigar is such a worldwide and unifying activity. Bovedas are a fantastic product and this podcast is a great addition to cigar culture. Keep up the great podcast.

Keep up the good work!

Rob does a terrific job interviewing people. This is one of my favorite podcast period and I listen to 70% podcast vs music or tv.

Great job, keep up the good work!
